Need help with Pennsylvania areas Mon, 03/12/07 12:40 PM (permalink)
We will be leaving for a couple of weeks in Pennsylvania the end of April. We will be staying in Drums. We will spend a night in Gettysburg on the way up and a night in Hershey area on the way back. We also plan to visit Lancaster. Any suggestions on local foods and places to not miss will be great. I have been there briefly, but my husband has not and he is looking forward to this trip! Thanks for all your help in the past!

      It's only open on Friday, but it's an experience:

        When I am in the Lancaster area, Shoo-Fly Pie is a must! Several places in the area offer it, but my personal preference, if for no other reason than the unique building, is the <a href="http://www.dutchhaven.com">Dutch Haven</a>, which is a few miles east of Lancaster on US 30 in the town of Ronks. And while it's easily been 15 years since I took the excursion, I'll second LeeMargo's suggestion of a trip on the <a href="http://www.strasburgrailroad.com">Strasburg Railroad</a>.

          While you are staying in Drums are you open to driving about 30-45 minutes? Wilkes-Barre and Scranton have some very good restaurants---distinctive pizza, Italian, diners, etc. Hazleton is a little closer too, but I only have a few rec's there. Let me know. I'll write back.

            Yes, we are driving up and are willing to go 1-3 hrs. to see, do and eat something special!! My husband is especially interested in Philly Steak and Cheese-after The White House in Atlantic City he has been disappointed in others! Please share ideas.

              Ah, Drums! I'm a couple miles up the road in Mountain Top. I'm not sure I'd describe anything locally as "can't miss", but there are some options better than others. Could you give me an idea of what you're looking for, other than Philly steak & cheese? How long will you be in the area? Do you want road food, or fine dining, or either? Are you interested in entertainment options as well? Either Stan or myself can look at the local events calendars for you, too.

                There's a thread on here called "Pennsylvania Cuisine" Go to the search feature on the home page and type it in. You'll get numerous suggestions.

                Footnote to ALL Roadfooders. The Search function can give you info on practically any topic in the world of foog and then some.
